On record, however, Wright comes across somewhat less unbridled. She plays multiple instruments but somehow makes music that, no matter how detailed, is a stark, minimalist production. Her work has been compared to poets and, much to her chagrin, pretenders such as Tori Amos and Edie Brickell. When's the last time you heard Amos and Brickell described as "perilous and confounding"?
So, what's the twist of the journey on Perishable Goods? The first twist is that Wright has released an EP of previously recorded, previously unreleased tracks (bridging the gap between her two albums) that's accessible to those who don't map silence by the number of times they have flogged themselves in the dark. Along with past contributors Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers) and Joey Burns (Calexico) -- as well as members of the Glands, Low, the Rachel's and Man or Astro-Man? -- Wright has released something lovely for the lonely. The organs sound less like carnivals gone awry, and the guitars and pianos more weightless. Perishable Goods' twist is that the journey may end fruitfully, and so does the EP.
